Croeso i Blwyddyn 2 – Welcome to Year 2
Ready, Steady, Grow
For the First part of the Summer term, our topic is growing. To link with this, our literacy focus is Jack and the beanstalk. We have lots of activities planned including growing our own beanstalks! We will be exploring what plants need to grow and how they grow. The children have been busy creating a castle as our role play area and we have even had a Giant visit our class and leave us a letter!
Topic Web – Ready, Steady, Grow
For the Spring Term, our topic was Space. The children helped to make a rocket for our role play area. They have had a great time playing it in. They explored lots of different things to do with space. They have even created their own books about planets in the solar system.

Great Fire of London.
We have learnt a lot about the Great Fire of London. The class really enjoyed going to the Fire Station in Sketty, finding out about how the fire spread so quickly and what they had to do to put it out!
As part of the topic we will be making some houses out of cereal boxes. If you have spare boxes, please send them in. We have used them as a class display and a re-enactment of the fire.
We have also been focusing on learning how to write an explanation. We have written detailed pieces of work about how the fire spread so quickly. The work they have done, has made Mrs Bowen and I very proud of them.
We had great fun learning about Africa as part of our first topic is Sensational Safari.
We had a special delivery in class, at the beginning of term. The children, received a box with a Letter, Map, Meerkat and Story book. The book was Meerkat Mail. It is the book we are using this term as our Literacy Focus.
